"The Jester" as written by Roughton Reynolds, Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow and Robert Rolfe....
"Err Simmer down ladies and gentlemen, Simmer down, hey,
you're acting rather irresponsibly right now, god damn you all"

Hold your horses, steady now,
'Cause we're floating precariously and therefore furthermore frivolously
On tectonic plates
Everything we stand on and everything we stand for
Is rather unstable right now
So I think I'll kill some time and have you done medium rare
But I think I'll tease my pallet with some crudités, just to prepare
Cos you see we've had a joker in the pack now for quite some time
So I reckon it's just about time we roast this swine.

Argh! This is a crock of shit I refuse to be fed!
So knuckle down and use your head
Can it sunshine, bottle it up you ponce
Then knock me up a dish with some vol-au-vents

Now i think we should take a leaf from the promised book (burn it up burn it up)
Now i think we should take a leaf from the promised book (burn it up burn it up)
Lets throw it up and start again
Lets throw it up and start again
Shoo!

Nicely does it now
Steady
hold, hold, target locked
Cop a load of this one
Arr yeah!

Ah That was great, my compliments to the chef, I'm very sat-is-fied
I'll be sure to dine here again, fine cuisine.
The stuffed cheeks were very agreeable,

All in all a splendid spread.

    General CommentI'd say it's about the end Bush Adminstration, with George W being the joker in the pack. The "crock of shit we refuse to be fed" being everything America has done over the past 9-10 years.

    General Commenti think the line "i'll be sure to dine here again" is a threat at the next p.m/president

    i think personaly think its more about the president becase he is seen as the leader of the free world

    despite being a english band

    plus not many people can name the british prime minister
